A few years ago I re-viewed a few episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation and was reminded how generally bland that series is: including a surfeit of two-dimensional characters. (TNG has not aged well, at all.)
To repeat something I read recently: 'A good actor in a generally thankless role.'
The good news, for some, at least, is this will be a new series; a new shot at the character of Jean-Luc Picard. (His life after his captaincy.)
